Proud partner of the

YMCA of San Diego County

Y Go Solar? Because Everybody Wins.

We’ve partnered with the YMCA of San Diego County to help the incredible organization rebound quickly from the nationwide lockdowns. 

In celebration of HES Solar’s 20th Anniversary (small compared to the YMCA’s 177-year history!) we’re supporting the YMCA of San Diego County with a $500 donation for every solar system purchased through this partnership.* 

You win – This donation is effortless to you. You’ll get the best solar system, custom-designed for your home and your lifestyle. You’ll save tens of thousands of dollars over the coming decades. You’ll gain the freedom to use your electricity how you want without concern for cost or environmental impact. You’ll join the HES Solar family which includes generous referral bonuses. Note: you can join our referral program even if you do not go solar with HES Solar. 

The YMCA wins – For every customer we reach through our YMCA partnership we’ll donate five hundred dollars to help them quickly recover from the state mandates that shut their doors to the communities they serve. We’re kicking off the partnership with a $5,000 donation and hope to give more than $20,000 before the end of the year. 

HES Solar wins – We’re thrilled to have a way to celebrate our 20th Anniversary, reach more people, and help a fantastic organization. Our Commercial division has built large-scale solar at seven San Diego YMCA facilities and our Residential team is hopeful to share the benefits of solar with YMCA members.  

San Diego wins – As YMCA facilities, events, and programs open San Diegians of all ages regain a partner to achieve their highest potential and enjoy good health of spirit, mind, and body. 

California wins – Privately-owned solar is the best way to produce renewable energy, limit electricity transmission line construction, and create local jobs. 

The environment wins – Clean, green energy produced where it is used allows a minimum impact on energy production and distribution emissions. 

How to make it happen: Fill out and submit the form on this page or call 619.692.2015 to get signed up for this partnership’s donation program and learn how a solar system can power your home or business to higher levels. You can deliver a positive environmental and community impact. Start today.

*$500 donation is paid directly to the YMCA after the project is complete and the system receives Permission to Operate. 4.5kW minimum system size, must contract before the close of business day December 31, 2021.
